Haiku For May 2022
The world around me is greening
By now, most of the new leaves are out on the trees. There are a few stragglers, of course. The nearby paulownia tree always seems to take its time; the buds are still sprouting. Everything else seems to be flowering or fully green.
I took this photo of a ladybug a couple of Mays ago while on a walk along some nearby powerlines. The orangey-red wing covers stood out from the newly green foliage attracting my attention. Fortunately, this one was busy with dinner and stayed around long enough for me to take pictures.
